https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&product=Bespin&chfieldfrom=2009-11-24&columnlist=all
is a list of all open Bespin bugs changed after 24th November 2009, with the "columnlist=all" parameter. Included in the list of columns are fields like blocking1.9.1 and status1.9.1, which are not relevant for the Bespin product. The code which hides certain custom fields in certain products does not seem to be modifying the fields returned by search.

This affects the BzAPI, which uses columnlist=all to get maximum data out of search results.

It may be that this is architecturally unfixable, but I thought I'd file it to find out.

This is a local hack in bmo.

Presumably you mean the restriction of custom fields to particular products? Ah.

  No, the whole implementation of those fields is a local bmo customization.
Yeah, I looked into this, and I think it would be very difficult to fix given the current implementation.
Given the above, WONTFIX, I'm afraid. Just ignore them.
